I don't remember a lot from the movie. I watched it maybe around 2004 to 2011 and all I can remember was that two people (or perhaps more) who were friends in the movie entered some cyber-world. The cyber-world is not futuristic in the sense of flying cars etc. It's just different in that when the characters go there its strange for them and they see like a whole bunch of different people and girls that are dressed erotically and there's a girl with neon pink hair that they end up meeting. I think at the end they were chasing some guy.

I have been trying to figure out what this movie is for the longest time but can't remember what it is please help. The movie is not animated, it's real life.

The following things might have been in the movie:

  1. The characters used computers to go in this world.
  2. The people who were in the virtual world were obese.
  3. One of the characters might have fallen in love with this pink haired girl

It's not sharkboy and lava girl.

    Let's simplify this: Movie, cyber-world, girl with pink hair and chasing scene at the end. Not much to go off, can you add any more details? Language, character/actor names? More of the plot elements?

  • Could it be Sala Samobójców (Suicide Room)?

    Maybe a better description of what made it seem like a cyber world, or futuristic? Were there flying cars, holograms, random lights on the edges of things?

  • Any chance it's the Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3D? Commented Jul 7, 2016 at 3:17

    +1 for adding more details. Not ringing any bells though, sorry.

I believe you're thinking of the 2009 Gamer starring Gerard Butler.

In this movie, people connect to other people, although it seems like a digital world. People inject themselves with nanites that allow others to completely control them, and connect to a virtual reality system that also lets them experience everything the other person's body experiences.

The pink-haired girl you're probably thinking of is Angie Tillman:

Image of Angie with hair that looks pink under the blue light

Although her hair is only pink there because of the lighting (other times it's blue), and you usually see her with orange hair:

Angie, with orange hair, and John with a gun

She's volunteering for a game called "Society", which lets people control her in a way almost like Second Life, except they can do whatever they want with the controlled bodies, including making them dress and look how they want, and force them to have sex. There's some very erotic parts to this.

I tried to do a screen cap of a scene that shows when a user connects to this world, but unfortunately the parts that make it seem futuristic contain nudity or are just generally NSFW, so I won't be posting one. However, it happens about 17 minutes into the movie, if you get a copy. This pic of the top gamer playing with the UI in the FPS-game (that the main character is trapped in) is the best I could do, under short notice:

As far as your obese people go, in this case Angie Tillman is controlled in "Society" by her player, seen here:

And yeah, they were chasing a bad guy, who was trying to control nanites in people against their will.

    @Praxis I recognized it immediately, but couldn't remember the name or actors at all. However, I remembered watching it right around when Surrogates with Bruce Willis came out, and thinking how odd it was to have 2 movies based on people controlling other bodies come out so close together. Lo' and behold, searching "Movies like Surrogates" popped it right up.

    @CreationEdge its never odd - the movie studios tend to be like sheep, if 1 makes a movie of a certain subject, the others jump on that bandwagon.

    @gbjbaanb - particularly when, as for Surrogates, it's an adaptation of a pre-existing story from another medium.

Code Lyoko (Evolution?) is the show you might be looking for.

Animated in both CGI, 2D and real actors for earth.

Story about kids were able to enter into some sort of cyber network with artificial intelligence XANA. Also pink haired girl in other world too.They are chasing a bad guy Professor Lowell Tyron. They fight futuristic monsters (where the show then goes into CGI). And when on earth the show use actors. XANA is a artificial intelligence, the kids use computers to get into the other world. Not sure about clothing?? depends on how you look at it. Xana creates plenty of futuristic tech monsters. Yup one of the guys is in love with the pink haired girl. Not sure about fat people... ??

Is it Tron Legacy? All your requirements fit except the obese people thing. Also I don't remember the girl's hair color.

  • Her hair color was Blue

  • I don't recall any blue hair in Tron: Legacy. Quorra (Olivia Wilde) had black hair, while Gem's was white (there was a blue tint to most of the lighting, but by comparing the "real world" scenes to the "grid" scenes it seems pretty clear what the actual coloring is.
